Ward is getting a back-to-back start tonight, or so we are told, after 46 saves in last night's OT game. I'm going to pull one out of my *** and just assume that Boucher is not net-worthy at this point in time.
Canes lose 5-1, with the lone goal coming from Slutty, assist by Staal, and the Facebook people pretend that's the same thing as a win.
And BTW: all five goals come in the last 3 minutes of regulation.
The 2011-2012 Buffalo Sabres won't just go down in hockey lore as one of the greatest team of all time, oh no. They'll be right up there along side the 2000's decade-long Bills dynasty. Just a dynamic era for Buffalo sports right now.
Cam Ward gets the start again. He hasn't got a prayer.
I have a feeling the Eastern Conference is about to get Reggie Miller'd by the 'Canes.
Reggie Miller'd, adj, (Rëh - jee, Mïh - läərd)When a player or team (usually Basketball) Does something hilariously crazy and unlikley in a short amount of time to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. 1 - Wow, Reggie Miller just Reggie Miller'd John Starks and the Knicks... That was f***ing hilarious. 2 - The Calgary Flames blew a 5-0 lead vs. the Blackhawks on October 12th, 2009. Ya, Chicago totally Reggie Miller'd them. 3 - The Giants were up on the Eagles 31-10 with 8:17 left in the 4th on December 19th 2010 so I stopped watching. Dude, you missed the best comeback ever, Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson totally Reggie Miller'd New York, it was epic. 4 - Did you see the Cowboys beat the Redskins on Monday Night Football last night (Week 2, 2005)? 13-0 with 2 minutes left, so I went for a beer to celebrate. DUDE!!, Mark Brunell and Santana Moss Reggie Miller'd them, 2 TD's on two striaght passes, Washington won 14-13.
Buffalo has played eight games this season against opponents who had played the day before while the Sabres had the day off. They are 7-1-0 in those games. The Canes are 2-6-2 this season in 10 games as the non-rested team.
Will be interesting to see how much jump the Canes have and how long they can maintain it.
